Slam's Garden Resort
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Malapascua Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 November 2016

We unfortunately had medical issues while here and the staff took the time to recommend Dr. Dublin on the mainland and make sure we knew how to get there. They were very helpful with our troubles in each and everyway! Dive shops right beside hotel, easy access to ferry services and some good restaurants - Italian, and Tai. This is in a small village where many of the people are very poor. The diving was quite poor due to hurricane Yolanda in 2013, grenade fishing, Thresher sharks and white tip sharks most interesting, but not much else.

Room Tip: 2nd floor with balconies are nicest 2nd floor facing pool is great

Hello,
Thank you so much for you nice review.
We are happy that you feel our staff take care of you. We always try to take care as much as we can for our guests.
For the island, yes this is small community in different villages (most fisherman's) yes people are very poor but always very nice.
For the diving, yes we have whitetips and treasher sharks.
Some dive sites can be damaged du to past dynamite fishing but is not du to the typhon Yolanda. Typhon don't damage much down...
Also i don't know with wich diveshop you dive. They are many many nice dives in Malapascua. But some diveshops never go there du to not enough experience of the guests or them self as teaching and diving there.... or coz is little fare away.
Most places in Monad Shoal starting 30 meters bellow are wonderful. Full of corals and not damage at all. Unfortunately that will involve decompression diving and most diveshops have no dive masters train properly for taking guests (who have license for diving there, deep diving,or license for practicing decompression diving, like Cmass, or some others) And also no instructor teaching decompression diving in this dive shops. You have nice pioneer wreck just off in north Of the island. Full of life and beautiful. But it's at 55 meters. Not many dive shops also organise dives to Maripipi in leyte. (3h00 boat) except French kiss divers . But there is full of life everywhere since you go down. Corals everywhere and have so many fish, turtles, sharks etc.... starting 3 meters...

Again thank you for you nice review.

My 2D1N stay in Slam's Garden Resort was really good. My friend and I arrived in the resort around 8 am we knew that the check in time is 12 noon but we tried to ask the receptionist if it is possible to check in early and with luck she told us it's okay we just have to wait for few minutes because another staff was cleaning and preparing the room after another guests just checked out. So we decided to have breakfast in their restaurant and waited for not a long time until room was ready.

What I like about Slam's is the place is clean, our room was good for a fan room, bathroom was clean with hot and cold shower though the water is salty which we do understand because it's an island and even other restaurants we've tried they don't have service water but it wasn't a problem at all. Moreover, the staffs are accommodating and always greeted us with nice smiles. Furthermore, I'm really fond of swimming in the pool, so I really enjoyed plunging in their clean pool. Overall, our whole stay was nice. I will surely come back at Slam's next time I will visit Malapascua and definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: Convenient and very accessible.

Received full support for all my needs, from the staff and also from the owner (via email). They are so kind and flexible.

My room was very clean, the aircon was excelent, very good shower, nice bed, nice pillow and sheets.

Wonderfull pool.

Also hired the private taxi and boat service from Cebu Airport. Very satisfied with the service provided.

Room Tip: Second floor, deluxe room was the best.

We booked a room via Agoda.com, gettinga decent deal for 4 nights. On arrival we were surprised at how well presented and lovely the resort was. Super impressed.

The staff were friendly and always hard at work. Although this isn't on the main beach, the location was great. Close to two beach fronts, shops and restaurants.

Definitely recommend Slams if you are visiting Malapascua.
